Shoe Details




This year marks the twenty year that the Kayano has been in existence, yet it still finds itself maintaining what it's known for: maximum support and a plush ride. The new FluidRide midsole and the most gel-cushioning to date ups the durability factor and the top of the line upper technologies help create a sock like fit around your foot. Here is to another twenty one years.

Features & Benefits


  • Rearfoot Gel cushioning system uses a silicone-based gel for responsive shock absorption on impact.
  • Forefoot Gel cushioning system uses a silicone-based gel for responsive shock absorption on impact.
  • Discrete Heel unit is a component of IGS that provides excellent shock absorption in the heel.

  • Midsole
  • FluidRide provides responsive cushioning with reduced weight and increased durability.
  • Guidance Line is a vertical flex groove in the forefoot for improved gait efficiency.
  • Dynamic DuoMax Support System reduces over pronation by controlling the movement of the foot, leading to a smoother heel to toe transition.

  • Upper
  • Open mesh on the upper provides breathable coverage.
  • FluidFit consists of multi-directional stretch mesh that provides a personalized, glove-like fit.
  • Personal Heel Fit (PHF) uses a two layer memory foam lining in the heel collar to provide a individualized fit.
  • Heel Clutching System uses an exoskeletal structure that wraps the heel for a secure fit.
  • Reinforced Vamp increases durability through the addition of a thin and seamless mesh overlay.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to SpEVA 55 Foam, for enhanced cushioning and a moderately soft underfoot feel.

    • Similar to the Kayano 20 in a good way

      Review by Sean (Posted on 4/11/16)

      I was a big fan of the Kayano 20, so I was very please with how these felt and performed. Overall the shoes are very similar to the 20s in shape, cushioning, and weight. The one difference I noticed was there seemed to be a bit more venting. I run about 20 miles a week, and after the first two weeks, they held up very well and have been really comfortable.

      After the Kayano 20, and now the 21, I feel like I'll stick with this line from Asics for a long time to come.
